I object to main modifications 207, 208 and 409 (changes to allocations BA3 and BA4, and supporting text) for these reasons:
1. The changes are not effective, as they do not provide clear guidance on the appropriate extent of development in this part of Baldock.
2. As a result, the changes conflict with national planning policy because they could allow:
* a much-used area of open space to be lost or eroded, without replacement provision (and this open space which will be needed more than ever with the housing proposed in the local plan)
* building on potentially unstable land, as this area is formed from rubble excavated during the building of the Baldock by-pass, which could give significant problems in the future
* development on rising ground that could be of poor design, especially in relation to its surroundings, and could impact on the existing housing
* houses built on this land close to the bypass would be subject to significant traffic noise.
* The open space has considerable environmental value for plant diversity, and is a nesting site for skylarks, which are otherwise rare in our area
3. It is not justified, as showing this entire area as housing is unnecessary to allow the housing and related infrastructure proposed in the submission local plan to go ahead.
The 'white land' that was left unallocated in the submission Local Plan should instead be designated as 'urban open land', which would safeguard its primary role as open space.
